Well when more dx10 games come around we will see because to date having more memory hasnt meant squat in the past. In the past this has made very little difference. Whether your card was slow with more memory or less made no difference. I would bet by the time both cards get through there term they will both be equally outdated and need to be upgraded either way and the extra memory wont mean squat. By the time you overclock the 320 meg card the 640 meg card will be left in the dust. Might as well step up to the GTX or stay with the 320 meg card. From everything I have seen the 320 meg card overclocks better.

Except for Dark Messiah (which is obviously a typo or problem with the game because the cards that are beating it are ridiculously slower and have less memory ) the 320 meg GTS either equals or beats the 640 meg card.

That really doesn't make sense, unless the second user would rather get an equal card with absolutely no warranty on it.

I understand that people buy more EVGA cards brand new and I'm not saying anything is wrong with that, but I was talking about selling off used cards, since he said how EVGA cards retain their value more than XFX cards.

EVGA's warranty transfers to the new owner.

Huh, that's too bad. I sold someone my old 6600GT and EVGA allowed me to transfer the warranty to the new owner, but I guess that was a while back.
